TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 14 years. My bachelors is in Elementary Education with a certification in Pre-K to 6. I also have a degree in Recreation and a Masters in Education Leadership/Administration.

Interim Assistant Principal, Mentor teacher for high school students and the college student teaching lead teacher, trainer of teachers; specializing in teaching boys, Grade level chair, School Improvement Chair.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe teaching should be fun for the student and the teacher. I rarely do the same thing twice! I believe students should be actively involved in their own education. I believe students deserve respect and treated as partners in their educational journey. They should have a say in what they learn. I include my students in the planning of what we learn and eagerly listen to their ideas. They are in charge of their room in the since of keeping it clean and organization. They set the mood of the learning (with my gentle guidance of course :) I empower my students to be the best "me" they can be! "He who works the hardest learns the most."
